£25,000 donation from the Dulverton Trust



The Dulverton Trust has very generously donated £25,000 to Independence at Home. The Trust has a long history of supporting our charity and we are truly grateful for their continued help. The funds will be used to provide grants for older people to help towards the cost of special equipment and home adaptations, helping to improve active living.

We’d like to thank the Dulverton Trust and all of our donors for the wonderful support they give to us and to our clients. Your support means a great deal to us.

Ian runs for Independence at Home

On Sunday 22 October at 10am, Ian Davies took part in the Great South Run through historic Portsmouth, in aid of Independence at Home. We were delighted that Ian completed the 10 mile race in 1 hour, 24 minutes and 38 secs which beat his personal best time by 2 seconds!

Although it was a lovely sunny day, the blustery coastal wind made the last two miles of the race hard going, but seasoned runner Ian was determined to forge ahead.

So far Ian has raised £160 plus £27.50 in gift aid donations. You can still support him and help him reach his target of £250. To donate follow this link: justgiving.com/fundraising/ian-davies43.
